"COPY the folder to your drive,key word copy because if you move the folder you no longer have that show on dvd."

Are you speaking about CD-RW and DVD-RW ? because I've never encountered a situation where moving files from a CD or a DVD to a hard drive has erased the CD or DVD. Memory sticks are a different story, where you better be damn careful moving stuff around.
Of course, the obvious method of using a CD/DVD drive that does not have burning capabilities, is that there is no way you will lose the file on the media. Just one more reason to have two drives, one to burn with, one to play with.
